Flawless Federer sweeps past Lacko, Wozniacki falls

World No. 1 Roger Federer cruised to a straight set victory against Lukas Lacko on Wednesday to advance to the third round at Wimbledon.

Pella raised his level in set number three, serving well and earning a break in game seven when they returned to the court after the first delay, but that was the last game we saw for today. "It's great to follow Federer and Nadal, but I think 16 seeds would shake up the men's draw".

Roger Federer's Wimbledon dominance is showing no signs of weakening as he breezed into the third round. In the third set, Federer broke Lacko in the fifth game to take a commanding 4-1 lead before winning the final two games to finish off the match. In total, he lost just nine of 61 points on his serve and broke Lacko five times, including a dominant forehand victor to claim the match win.

"It's nearly as if he doesn't need to play tennis matches, it comes so natural for him".
